Exciting weekend of football!

Premier League MW 7

West Ham 3 vs. 1 Man United

United seem to be suffering from Mourinho’s third season syndrome as they suffered a defeat in London to West Ham. Felipe Anderson opened the scoring in the 5th minute with a brilliant back heel tap in although Zabaleta seemed offside when the pass was made. Yarmolenko then shot at goal in the 43rd minute and it took a massive deflection off Lindelof to make it 2 goals for the hammers. Rashford did give United a goal back in the 71st minute but Arnautovic soon restored parity with a goal in the 74th minute. West Ham move up to 14th in the table while United continue to drop as they are now 10th.

Arsenal 2 vs. 0 Watford

Arsenal were poor throughout the game but held on to the very end to make it 5 wins in a row for the Gunners. A Cathcart own goal broke the deadlock in the 81st minute and Ozil added a second two minutes later to give Arsenal three points. Watford were decent throughout the game but see themselves drop out of the top four as they are now 6th. Arsenal climb up to 5th with the win. 

Everton 3 vs. 0 Fulham

Everton ended their winless run with a resounding win at Goodison Park against Fulham.
